New York Blues

By Sally Valentine

NYB Buffalo

There are no buffalo in Buffalo;
Rye is not built of dark bread.
They don't grow almonds in Almond;
the bass in Fishkill are not dead.

So, is there silver in Sterling?
Can Sugar Loaf really be sweet?
Are there no long pants in Shortsville?
Is Redfield the color of beets?

Do they speak only German in Germantown?
Is there really a monarch in Queens?
I guess when it comes to the state of New York
nothing is just as it seems.
